the lawyer of 55 victims denounces “the guilty intention of Lionel Guedj”

After four weeks of trial, it was time for the pleadings of the civil parties this Monday against doctors Guedj. The lawyer for 55 victims denounced “a mutilator and a simulator”. The indictment is expected Monday, April 4.

At the opening of the pleadings of the civil parties in this fifth and penultimate week of the trial, the lawyer for victims Mr Marc Ceccaldi did not spare the ex-dentist Lionel Guedj, judged with his father for mutilations committed on some 350 patients.

“You are a mutilator and a simulator”, he said denounced before the criminal court of Marseille.

Me Marc Ceccaldi gave the court the figure of 580 devitalized healthy teeth in the mouths of the 55 civil parties he is assisting: “To tell you the magnitude of the disaster is the equivalent of twenty mouths completely devitalized. She is there the guilty intention of Lionel Guedj”pleaded the lawyer.

Lionel and Jean-Claude Guedj are judged for having carried out the decay of healthy teeth with the mercantile aim of placing a large number of prostheses, the most profitable act.

After two weeks during which the complainants recounted the pain and suffering that many of them still endure more than ten years after the events, Lionel Guedj apologized.

His defense strategy is always the same. he former dentist from the northern districts recognizes errors in treatment, faults, but, he repeats, “I never wanted to hurt anyone, I never wanted to mutilate. I died of shame and deeply touched by the suffering that I was able to impose on my patients”.

A contrition swept away by Me Ceccaldi for whom the goal of Lionel Guedj “wasn’t not medicine but finance”: He acted “by violence and by trickery”launched the lawyer according to whom the ten years of the instruction allowed the defendant to “to secure its fraudulent assets”.

Describing “the anatomy of crime”, the representative of 55 civil parties spoke of a real “Guedj system”: “The ordeal of all the victims has the point starting the first meeting, it is then that the trap closes, he is the beginning of a heavy treatment which has the appearance of sanitary predation”.

“The gimmicks of Lionel Guedj, it is the loosening of the teeth that threatens, the sensitivity to hot and cold which require the installation of large bridges and the replacement, for certain plaintiffs, of all their teeth by prostheses, detailed the lawyer.

Me Ceccaldi repeated to the court the physical and moral suffering of his clients because “the mouth is not just a masticatory instrument, it is the vector of smile, social relationship, kiss. There she is martyred so lasting and the identity is turned upside down”.

The indictment is expected Monday, April 4.
